Veggie Tales Sweetpea Review and Giveaway

DVD Synopsis

Once upon a time, there lived a royally sour blueberry, a fair rhubarb maiden and a dastardly deceptive mirror! Sweetpea Beauty knows that what’s on the inside is what matters most, but insecure Queen Blueberry can’t see past her own reflection! So, when a decree is handed down that only the most beautiful can rule the land, the Queen gets nervous and things turn ugly! Banished to the dark forest, Sweetpea’s fate seems bleak until a charming prince, a band of merry minstrels and seven snow peas come to the rescue! Will Sweetpea and her friends be able to warn the Queen in time to save her from the clutches of the tricky mirror – or will the crumbling kingdom and the Queen’s own heart be lost forever? Find out in this fairy "Veggie" tale about the real meaning of true beauty.

Plus, the almost-classic tale of . . . Snoodlerella

A self- conscious Snoodlerella is the star of the ball after getting an extreme makeover. Her life of glamour is short-lived as the clock strikes midnight and her glasses, braces and insecurities return. Will she be able to see herself as the good King sees her—unique, beautiful and perfect just the way she is?

Bonus Features:

  • Directors’ Audio Commentary
  • Art Gallery
  • Sweetpea’s True Beauty Guide For Girls
  • “Pants” Silly Songs with Larry Sing-Along
  • “More Beautiful” Sing-Along
  • Girl Talk – Girls share their thoughts on meaning of true beauty
  • Behind The Music of Sweetpea Beauty—An Interview with Nichole Nordeman


My children are 11 and 8 and they still enjoy Veggie Tales, I admit I do too.

In a world where most of the cartoons on tv revolve around violence and ridiculous plots, it's good to continue to have a good Christian show for children, something they can learn from while still having fun and being silly.

I was asked to review this new Veggie Tales which is actually *in my opinion* mostly geared towards girls, or should I say, mainly featuring a girl character.....SweetPea!

The kids and I just loved it.

Here is a Parent's guide to True Beauty based on the DVD Movie. Just click on them to enlarge.

Now for the giveaway. I have two copies up for grabs, they will be shipped directly to you from the company, so a big thank you to Elizabeth from The Morris + King Company for Big Idea Entertainment.

The giveaway is open to US Residents only. I will draw a winner on Friday the 16th.

Please leave your name and a way to contact you, if your name is drawn and you don't get back to me within 3 days, I will have to pick another winner.

No running around following anyone, no citing the alphabet backwards, nothing....just leave me a comment if you're interested in winning a copy.

Good Luck!
